Fresh in from the tip line. Anyone know anything?
I heard something really weird the other day. A friend (who is gay) was at the bar at the new Scholars Inn. He commented on the new designs to a manager/assistant manager behind the bar who replied something to the effect of: "We're hoping it helps get the queers out of here." My friend was shocked.
I find this so hard to believe. Why dismiss such a core part of your business (and *why* say anything about it?) I'm wondering if you'd heard anything? Are there were any rumors flying around that the attitudes at Scholar's Inn had changed?
(If anything, I thought their new design -- especially the downstairs bar -- would largely *appeal* to the gay community. Although I have noticed that they're not promoting Thursday night half-price martini night although they are continuing the special.) Just wondering if you'd heard any rumblings down on Mass Ave?
